Leave home now. If only for a little while. Leave early. If only just to make me smile. Change the plan. I got myself another drink, bought for me. I said it would be rude I think. But laidback is what I’m told. Early hours can do their worst. Can you help me out with a song? And if the morning doesn’t get me first Can you heal me up with a song? It’s uphill but I’ll race you for a little game. We’re much closer. Why can’t it always be this way? Said the stranger: ‘You know you got yourselves a style’. Yea we know man, we owned it for a little while. But laidback is what I’m told. Early hours can do their worst. Can you help me out with a song? And if the morning doesn’t get me first Can you heal me up with a song?

I can see my baby walking down the street. Doesn’t care what the people think. Doesn’t care about her dirty feet. Doesn’t care about the clothes she wears or any kind of style. Just living in her own world and doing it with a smile. Can you be her angel? Can you read her thoughts? If what I’m seeing is the truth then an angel is what she’s got. Can you see my darlin? Can you hear her voice? Can you breathe the air she breathes? Cos without you she is lost. I can see my baby being grumpy like her dad, but she’ll never cry or scream and for that you should be glad. And if at bedtime she doesn’t want to sleep. You can talk the whole night long. Her head upon your knee. Can you be her angel? Can you read her thoughts? If what I’m seeing is the truth then an angel is what she’s got. Can you see my darlin? Can you hear her voice? Can you breathe the air she breathes? Cos without you she is lost.

Wouldn’t you say that life is hard? We take it day by day, I think we made a start. But then you teach me how to behave and I’m blown away. Would I say my life is hard? From where I’m standing I think I might’ve missed that part. But then I step out of line and I hang my head in shame. Pain me a picture and make me see that I’ve been missing what’s in front of me. I’ve taken advantage of a privilege game. Forgive me your honour. I won’t do it again. I’ve hear people say their lives are hard. But with a rich, white dick you get a good head start. And if you get into trouble then your mum and dad will pay. I’ve heard Hugo say that life’s not hard. While he’s ducking and diving trying to find a heart beneath an ocean of private school emotion. And now his outlook is it’s him vs us and I’m blown away. Pain me a picture and make me see that I’ve been missing what’s in front of me. I’ve taken advantage of a privilege game. Forgive me your honour. I won’t do it again. You give me insight into things that help me to grow. You teach me things that without you I wouldn’t have known. When I call you in the dead of night on your phone. When we’re walking in the dead of night on our own. You give me insight into things that help me to grow. You teach me things that without you I wouldn’t have known. Wouldn’t you say that life is hard?

They said I’m chilled. They called me laidback. 30 seconds prior to my heart attack. So I don’t work anymore. I’ve got good friends and I’ve got a good wife. Can they see me through the next 20 years of life? ‘Cos I don’t work anymore. I’ve been here before but I don’t recall the feeling of being past use. And it’s a feeling I don’t wish on you. Those plants look thirsty and there’s books I can read, But will they take away the silence from an old man in need. I don’t work anymore. I’ve sewn up my sweater. Sold a pair of old jeans, But the fiver doesn’t seem to justify the means. ‘Cos I don’t work anymore. I’ve been here before but I don’t recall the feeling of being past use. And it’s a feeling I don’t wish on you. I’ve made the bed for you darling. I even cleaned the whole house. Can you help me with this loneliness it’s brining me down ‘Cos I don’t work anymore.
